Former Bachelor star tiffany scanlon has revealed the sad reality of transitioning from a small screen star to a social media influencer.
In a post shared to Instagram on Wednesday, the outspoken blonde complained that users would prefer to 'like' shots of 'a girl in a bikini' rather than the 'meaningful content' she publishes.
'Haven’t posted in one week and it's been nice. I've felt super disheartened by Instagram lately - a combination of an unexplained decline in engagement and the research I've been doing about the platform,' she began in the caption.
'I'm having a whinge!' Former Bachelor star tiffany scanlon (pictured) has lamented the fact that fans aren't liking her Instagram photos as much as more popular bikini models
'I'm having a whinge but when I see posts that are of a girl in a bikini with a caption of the sun emoji ☀️ getting thousands of likes, and I try so hard to post meaningful content, I really can't help but feeling it is pointless even bothering.
'I'm also frustrated with myself for letting something so fickle as 'likes' even get to me,' she wrote.
Tiffany added she believes fans favour 'picture-perfect' posts over 'real' content.
